Clinton Curse Hovers Over DNC
Early next year the good citizens of New York are to select a new senator. The current leading candidate for that position, Hillary Rodham Clinton, is a shoo-in favorite of the elite liberal ruling class of the Empire State. Yet bubbling beneath the surface of a perfect candidate warming up for a 2008 presidential bid is the molten magma of a volcanic defeat. Hillary is the favored candidate of the radical left-wing media, but the open question is, Can she turn that into an election victory after such a poor showing as a senator?
Her term as New York senator can fairly be classed as less than spectacular. Her only connection to the Empire State is not her roots or her convictions, but her liberal politics. She has opposed a variety of Republican-sponsored legislation but so far has left no memorable legal mark.
She campaigned half-heartedly for fellow left-wing senator John Kerry but carried no states and few votes into the Democrat camp. Even her politics have wobbled over the last five years, from far left to near left, in order to maneuver into the perceived center in preparation for a presidential bid.
She has aimed shrill words at President Bush but only when it could score her a media photo opportunity. She has been booed on stage by the very people she let down in New York City after 9/11.
Clearly, her life in the White House from 1993 to 2000 was consumed with Monica, Chung, Huang and Vince. Her personal life in the White House consumed the Clintons, igniting a political passion not seen for years with accusations of "right-wing conspiracy" behind the stained dress and her tarnished image.
Her time was not spent discussing Osama, Saddam or Kim Jung Il. U.S. national security was not an issue then, and it remains lowest on Hillary's list today.
She still has not explained her wheeling and dealing during her husband's term in the White House. Her history and her legacy are already set in the concrete of the 1990s surrounding the illegal money, wild sex and party-crazy life of her faithless husband.
Mrs. Clinton does not have the coattails of Bill to ride into New York on Air Force One. She cannot deliver tons of pork aimed at buying allegiance, and she cannot deal with her sudden non-friends such as the Riady family and the Military Intelligence Department of the People's Liberation Army.
She can appear with the left-wing radicals from Hollywood because that will raise much out-of-state cash and win her support in the tabloids. Her political support always mystified me. I have spent hours trying to talk facts and reason with her most ardent supporters. The only argument they could muster was that I must not like her and therefore was prejudiced against her.
250 Times Under Oath
Of course, it is difficult to explain why Mrs. Clinton could not recall, had no recollection or simply forgot 250 times while under oath. Clearly, most ordinary people cannot perform such a stunt in front of a federal judge without spending some time behind bars or in a hospital.
However, the loyalty of her supporters is more closely related to the "personality" effect a form of cult or worship of the famed. Hillary, like Elvis or Capone, can muster a fan club that will overlook the most dangerous of flaws.
This "fool some of the people all of the time" phenomenon" is a form of mass mania that can put a vicious criminal into the highest office of the land.
Still, Mrs. Clinton has her opponents too. Just the threat of her running for office has kicked off massive fund-raisers and spurred whole groups into seeking combat with the New York senator.
It is no secret that Hillary's past takes us through a pile of hard, cold cash from the Chinese army. Chinese army agents roamed the White House, and Hillary has a photo album of scoundrels to show for her work.
For example, the one prominent name missing from Hillary's recent "tell all" book is Riady. Mrs. Clinton failed to mention the Riady family at all. One would get the impression that the Riadys were not present in the Clinton lifeline, much less visited (and stayed) in the White House on a regular basis.
Hillary Clinton certainly overlooked listing the table settings and menu for White House dinners with the Riadys.
The Riadys knew the Clintons from their Arkansas years, when Moctar bought out a Little Rock bank. Moctar and his son James were close to Bill and Hillary through 1992 and into the White House. Moctar even owned the firm selected by Hillary Clinton to replace the White House travel office after she accused the professional staff of criminal activity and had them canned.
Moctar and James Riady played a key role in bringing the Clintons to power in Washington. The Indonesian billionaire and his Lippo banking company managed to contribute large sums of money into the Clintons' campaigns even though it was against the law.
Moctar's gardener managed to contribute $450,000 directly to Bill Clinton in a single check. James Riady, Moctar's son, eventually pleaded guilty to campaign violations.
The connections between the Riadys and the Clintons have a much more sinister theme than simple foreign money inside the U.S. elections. Testimony before the U.S. Senate revealed Moctar Riady's involvement in Chinese espionage. The Lippo Group is in fact a joint venture of China Resources, a trading and holding company "wholly owned" by the Chinese communist government and used as a front for Chinese espionage operations.
Mrs. Clinton not only knew the Riadys but took their money as well. To prove my point I need only to cite photographic evidence. The picture of Hillary with Moctar Riady is certainly damning evidence of a relationship that spanned several bank accounts and two decades.
Unlike most good politicians, who bring together support, Mrs. Clinton polarizes the voters into two opposing points of view. The net result for the Democratic Party is not a pleasant picture.
Mrs. Clinton has so many skeletons in her closet that I am surprised her house does not rattle at night. I have written whole articles on Mark Jimenez, John Huang, Johnny Chung and Webster Hubbell.
After over a decade of Clinton politics, the DNC was beginning to show signs of life. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes of the 2004 defeat, the DNC can find a new face to rally behind, or it can stay with the Clinton dynasty and lose another election.
Hopefully, that will all change with her latest criminal escapade.
I'd forgotton that. Maybe it's time for Babs to start warbling Memories so we can bring back all those daily news-scum cycles
"Hillary, like Elvis or Capone, can muster a fan club that will overlook the most dangerous of flaws"......rather like Evita Perone...the closest 20th century figure to Hillary...http://www.geocities.com/CapitolHill/Lobby/3656/evita.html
The 22nd Amendment states: Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice ....
I want proof that Hillary! is not BJ's Trojan horse for a third term.
I'll say what I said before and that is her reelection is going to hinge on whether a dem wins the governorship or not. Admittedly alot of people in Ny might not know that if she wins reelection, runs for Prez and (shutters) wins, then the governor assigns a candidate from their party for the remainder of the term.
I also still believe there is a good chance that she doesn't even run for reelection. It avoids denying she will run for Prez, avoids her voting on issues up to election day 2008 and allows her to run all over the country while running some NGO targeted at a certain segment of national voters.
Actually, I really think that Hillary was the president and Bill was the co-president since he had to delegate so much of his office to her since he couldn't keep his pants zipped and got her into a fine mettle and for Bill to make up for his screw-ups he had to give her lots of authority.
Hell, I always figured that BJ was Hitlery's Trojan horse for HER first two terms!
I guess that Health Care issue left a bigger mark than we imagined, and so she is lying low on legislation till she has the WH again, which I pray will never happen.
Two things wrong with that statement: November 2006 is not "early next year," and they won't restrict the vote to good citizens--bad citizens, non-citizens, and deceased citizens will have their votes counted as well.
It may be true that she has done nothing of note as senator, other than get herself on TV a lot, but the average person doesn't realize that. If you were to take a poll asking people to name the most influential Democrat in the Senate, she'd probably get the largest share of the responses.
Let's not forget about PIAPs masters thesis. It is still sealed at Wesley??( not sure that is right) and has never come out. My theory is that it proves she is a communist from early days. Why can't we read her thesis???
This article underestimates Hillary's ability to snow the public, and overestimates by a mile the public's ability to recall past events.
Not to mention the writer's assumption that the public, when reminded of past transgressions, will care one iota about them.
The public will only pay attention to a few seconds of the evening news, and she will put forth a positive attitude with well-choreographed sound bites. And unless the Republicans have a super candidate, she will win.
Trojan Horse is right. These people can't be trusted in any way. There are too many scenarios to look at. What if Willie dies of some STD? Would that help her? Too many possibilities at this early stage. One thing is certain; the better one knows one's enemy, the easier to destroy him.
Sir Edmund Hillary Clinton
